Blueberry Oatmeal Walnut Bread

As soon as I discovered this recipe, I knew I wanted to make it soon. The pictures of it looked so incredibly moist and delicious. I changed a few things to make it healthier, and I was pleasantly surprised at how hearty this bread is and at how high it rose.   It is definitely delicious, but I'd love find a way to get the Points Plus values down some more, as it still has a few more than I would like. All in all, this is a great, hearty, delicious quick bread, perfect for those cold winter nights.
